Historical Traveller Reviews of Ottoman Hotel Imperial
Loved location, staff and cleanlinessfrom travelforfun6
Our room and bathroom, though not large, were most comfortable and also bright, quiet and very clean. The staff were delightful, always polite and could not have been more helpful.
Our only negative comment must be about breakfast which does need to be improved.
We hope to visit Istanbul again and we would definitely choose, and recommend to friends, the Ottoman Hotel Imperial.

Definitely not a 4-star hotel!from Runningshoes
Rooms: Our room was located 2 floors below the lobby i.e. underground/basement. It was extremely dark and our view was that of a wall. The rooms itself was tiny (but I guess this is the case in all hotels in Sultanahmet). The rooms are so small that if you open up your suitcase – there is no room to walk around. There was a strange odor very noticeable on the entire floor. The walls are very thin and you can hear everything going on in the rooms next to you (TV, toilet flushing, etc.). The first room we checked into had not been cleaned/serviced. Called the front desk and they promptly moved us to the room next door. In this room, I noticed hairs on the duvet and pillows but since I had already complained the first time, didn’t say anything about this. For the price, the overall quality of the room was quite disappointing. This is not the type of the room you could spend any time in or relax. I moved to Point Hotel in Taksim today – another 4-star hotel which is a huge improvement and at the same price there is no comparison of the two. Granted the location is not ideal but I would rather pay a few extra $$ for taxi.
Bathroom: The bathroom is also incredibly small – there is no room to put any toiletries anywhere. The toilet wasn’t fixed properly to the floor. It wobbled when you sat on it and had a slow leak.
Service: Have to say service at this hotel was excellent! Every single member of the staff was extremely friendly and courteous.
Location: Location of this hotel is ideal for visiting all the tourist locations in Sultanahmet. It is right next to the Aya Sofya and less than 5 min walk to Topkapi Palace and Blue Mosque.
Wonderful staff and terrific hotelfrom afoot
A Perfect Restorationfrom DrCNewYork
Great hotel in an Amazing location!from BillBar513
The staff was very friendly, helpful and courteous didn’t try to sell tours, etc. Breakfast was served in their downstairs dining room and was better than average. There were the usual cheeses, tomatoes, cucumbers and yogurt as well as several cold cereals and there was always fresh fruit on the buffet.
The location of the hotel is outstanding. As mentioned before it’s right next to Aya Sophia. So of course it’s also near the Blue Mosque, Bacilica Cistern, Topkapi Palace and Archeology Museums and numerous other attractions. It’s also an easy walk to the Spice Bazaar and fairy terminals. The Sultanahmet tram station is also quite close.
Great location,from johnooykaas
The staff was very friendly and correct., good service.
Rooms are nicely decorated.
Nice hotel, terrible roomfrom Carlina
the cityfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We had a standard room and the bath for me was a problem, it's is only a half bath and has a shower screen, getting in and out quite tricky and quite high from the ground. I don't think that all the rooms are the same.
You are within a 5 minute walk of the Blue mosque and 10 minutes to the Spice Bazar
Breakfast was the usual continental, good coffey
The tram station is 5 minutes walk away, and will bring you down to the boats on the sea front. Its not a city for high heal shoes, all cobbles.
A Taxi from the airport cost under 30 lire about 15euro and took25minutes late at night.
We got a good deal at 84euro per night for the room and breakfast included
Its a hostel what do you expectfrom mgcasvtiany

Restaurant Ottoman Hotel Imperial restaurant have really delicious Ottoman and Turkish cuisine .

Absolutely Amazing Hotel I have just returned from a 10 day visit from Istanbul, as a frequent business traveller whom has stayed in the some of the best hotels in world, I can clearly say this hotel has not let me down..if I go again I am definitely going to Ottoman Hotel Imperial to Stay. We got picked up from the airport on the correct time. we realised at the point that our service would be excellent as we were greeted by the driver and an administrator from the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel, our room was a little to small with a distant smell coming from the bathroom. the following day we asked for a different room and we were given one at that evening..our new room was great much better in size, and another excellent view. The hotel staff are Superb very friendly, very clean and the services are just great. Hotel is situated with walking distance to all the great attractions and you will not be using the taxi for anything.- the hotel is probably the closest hotel to the Aya Sophia and Blue mosque. A great choice and I just want to thank Ottoman Hotel Imperial for making our stay one of the best.. :)
